Dentures

A denture is a removable appliance designed to replace missing teeth. Dentures are either made of metal (cobalt chrome) or acrylic resin with each being better suited to different situations. Dentures are either complete (replacing all teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw) or partial (replacing one or several teeth).

Dentures are one of the alternatives for replacing teeth that we offer to our patients. Our Dentists can discuss these options with you in detail and work out which type will be most suitable for you.

Common Questions.

We have compiled a few general questions relating to Dentures, if you have a question of your own please don’t hesitate to contact our team.

Do dentures stay in all the time?

No, dentures are removable and we recommend that people do not sleep with them in. Dental Implants (Link) and bridges (Link) are alternatives which are permanently fixed into the mouth.

Fun Fact:

Generally foods and drinks that are high in sugar and acid are harmful to tooth enamel. Acidic foods and drinks (soft drinks, citric juices, sports drinks) can cause tooth erosion while high sugar content is more likely to contribute to tooth decay (cavities).
